Brock Lesnar Failed 2nd Test, UFC Says

Brock Lesnar Failed 2nd Test, UFC Says

UFC announced on Tuesday that, in addition to the out-of-competition sample collected on June 28, Brock Lesnar also failed an in-competition drug test taken at the T-Mobile Arena at the actual UFC 200 event.

The release states that both tests test positive for the same banned substance. The UFC cannot reveal the substance, and USADA will not reveal it until Lesnar’s hearing or Lesnar himself announces it.

Due to the closeness of both tests; the two samples being taken within a week of each other, the two tests will likely be presented as one violation at Lesnar’s USADA and Nevada Athletic Commission hearings. Both bodies have judgement on the case, and Lesnar is likely to face sanctions from both bodies if found guilty.
